Ted Cruz suggests Joe Rogan as President in wild Texas secession fantasy

The Republican Party has become a fundamentally unserious organization. That’s not to say it shouldn’t be taken seriously given the threat its steady march towards overt fascism poses to American democracy, but more so that it’s ideologically unserious.

The GOP once claimed to care about small government, family values, fiscal responsibility, and national security. The election of Donald Trump — a monstrously immoral moron incapable of governing in any sense — revealed the truth: the GOP exists solely to serve the profit needs of the super-rich. Weaponized bigotry and ignorance are deployed to keep the base riled up and distracted from the fact that the Republicans are looting the country hand over fist.

Since Republican politicians can’t admit that their only purpose is kleptocratic, they have to regularly whine about inane culture war issues and pontificate about truly stupid topics. Over the weekend, Senator Ted Cruz (TX) spoke at Texas A&M and discussed the idea of the state seceding from the union, a ludicrous concept that will never actually happen but which Republican officials like to treat as possible.

Add your name to demand Trump be forced to testify for January 6th committee!!

“Listen if the Democrats end the filibuster, if they fundamentally destroy the country, if they pack the Supreme Court, if they make D.C. a state, if they federalize elections and massively expand voter fraud there may come a point where’s it’s hopeless,” said Cruz, engaging in the kind of paranoid, conspiratorial thinking that has come to define his party.

“We’re not there yet. And if there comes a point where it’s hopeless then I think we take NASA, we take the military, we take the oil,” Cruz said, seemingly not realizing that if Texas did secede it would be the U.S. military who would be sent in to put down the rebellion just like they did during the Civil War.

“What about Joe Rogan are you going to take him?” Cruz was asked about the popular podcaster who lives in Texas.

“Joe Rogan, he might be president of Texas!” said Cruz.

Joe Rogan is about as qualified to be president as he is to give out medical advice — not at all.
